A National Apple Betty Day Recipe

An apple for today…for National Apple Betty Day!

apple halvesAn all-American dessert baked with fruit, in this case, apples, it’s considered to be a pudding recipe.

Incorporated with bread or cracker crumbs, butter, sugar and spices, Apple Betty can’t help but make you smile!

How to Bake Apple Betty:

It’s possible for most fruits to be utilized to make a “Betty” dessert, although since apples are quite firm, “Apple Betty” seems to hold this fruit more recognizably after baking.

Type: Dessert Recipe

Serve with: ice cream or custard
Prep Time: 10 – 12 min
Bake Time: 50 – 55 min
Serves: 6



  1. Preheat oven to 355 degrees F.
  2. Have a 9″ x 9″ unbuttered pan ready.
  3. Peel, core and slice 4 large apples.

  6. In a separate small bowl, squeeze fresh lemon juice.
  7. In bottom of a 9 x 9 inch pan, spread out 1/4 of bread crumb mixture. Then, arrange half of the apples, and top with half of the sugar mixture, and pour 4 tbsp lemon juice over top.
  8. Continue layering remaining ingredients until everything is used up – about 3 layers.
